The interior of the building features beautiful Spotted Gum wooden panelling and imposing Bluestone masonry throughout, reflecting the tones and geography of the outside environment — with sweeping floor to ceiling windows blurring the barriers between the inside and outside worlds. The lodge features two spacious master suites, three luxurious lodge suites, three pods, our Great Hall for dining, a bar, lounge areas, a games room, and a billiards room, all finished in the same beautiful aesthetic and designed for the utmost comfort and luxury.
As a continuation, our kitchen is as harmoniously furnished as the rest of our property. Featuring unique and distinguished natural ingredients such as locally foraged porcini mushrooms, and wild Fiordland Venison, creating contemporary and refined dining experiences — matched with our amazing wine selections, dining with us truly is unforgettable.
And if that wasn’t enough, the environment around us offers myriad ways to further engage. From angling in the Ahuriri River, to horse trekking around the expansive Ben Avon Station, GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN experience extends far beyond the threshold of our doors. And is entirely underpinned by our warm high country hospitality.
At GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN we use nature as our weathervane, and so when we see the effortless perfection of our environment, we are implored to emulate it. And so that’s what we do.
Our lodge is located in the Ahuriri Valley, 30 minutes away from the closest town Omarama. Please note that due to our remoteness, we do not have cellphone coverage at the lodge but we do offer complimentary wifi connection.
We are located 2 hours away from Queenstown and about 5 hours fro, Christchurch. The road to us is 95% concrete with the last 15 min being gravel.
